(Virginia Beach, VA) Earlier this month, Anne Miller accepted the History Museums Coordinator position for the City of Virginia Beach Department of Aquarium and Museums.
Miller joined the City of Virginia Beach in 2009 as an Exhibits Technician for the History Museums, and rose to the role of Curator of the History Museums in 2012. She supervised the opening of the Princess Anne County Training School/Union Kempsville High School Museum and managed key preservation projects at the Thoroughgood House and Lynnhaven House. In her new role, Miller will oversee the construction of the new Thoroughgood Education Center.
Prior to joining the city, Miller was the Curator for the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation and a Researcher for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Her responsibilities included assisting with the planning of the quadricentennial commemoration, developing Jamestown Settlements $14 million permanent galleries, which opened in 2006, and developing special exhibits and media projects. Miller has a bachelors degree in history from Yale University.
I am continually impressed with Anne's knowledge and skills of preservation, and her familiarity with our museums expressed Cynthia Spanoulis, Department of Aquarium and Museums Deputy Director. I am confident she will continue to make Virginia Beach's rich cultural history exciting and relevant for our guests, and will ensure that the work of the History Museums is aligned to the City's plan and vision.
